There is a version
Of me out there
That never seems
To want to care
I want to tell it
To hold on and become strong
Some day you will know
The right from the wrong
There is so much pressure
To flourish and advance
Then all you do is hope
For another chance
Don`t ever think
You’re smarter than you were
You’ll look back
And only see through blur
Think ahead at how
You’ll want to decide
Yesterday is always just
A remember to hide
But if you live without regret
And be content
Maybe you’ll be happy
For just a moment

TBT: There's Too Much (I Can Fear) (2000)

I close my eyes
There's too much
I can fear

I close my mind
There's too much
I can remember

I close my heart
There's too much
I can feel

I close my soul
There's too much
I can lose

Another Like It

Do you sometimes feel pressured
Like it’s getting too late
Like there’s only ground
At the end of the rainbow
We can more easily face
Things that scare us
If we remember
We can always help define fate

Do you sometimes feel smothered
Like it’s getting too negative
Like there’s only one painting
In a happy life’s museum
We can more easily accept
Things we don’t understand
If we remember
We can always find alternatives

TBT: Sometimes You Need To Know (1997)

Sometimes you need to know
I won’t let you go
It’s time to live my life
And I want you to last

The trees hide my shade
For you, the heart I gave
A path of altered love
That follows my past

Still Here

Confirmation that the party was finished
I was getting restless
There was not enough for them to go around
I was feeling useless

We ran around the neighborhood
I was getting lost
There was not enough happiness for all
I was feeling shocked

What role do I serve if I show gratitude
I was getting uncomfortable
There was not enough established protection
I was feeling vulnerable

TBT: Galaxy (2006)

There was
Behind me
In this
I was
Only visiting
When there was
No one
No one
To see

Do it now before you forget
That way there will be no regret
Take your time and find resolution
There’s only one true solution

Create it before it’s too late
That way there will be few mistakes
Take your time and find originality
There’s only one true impartiality

Find it before it finally disappears
That way there will be a souvenir
Take your time and find feedback
There is only one true way back

TBT: Nearly Everything Within (2012)

Cling to the past
Focus on your life
Obsessed with damaging
Whatever would last
Go back and overlook
Nearly everything within

Turn to the lost
Touch what is fire
Obsessed with the dark
Whatever would fall
Go back and repeat
Nearly everything within

Confess to the truth
Explain what you missed
Obsessed with ignorance
Whatever would satisfy
Go back and regret
Nearly everything within
